Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Need help finding a show.

I'm trying to locate a show. I had a cassette of it years ago but who knows where it is now. Anyhow,.. It is possibly a filmore from the early to mid 70's. Bill Graham intro's the band as "The God Damn' Grateful Dead". It has acoustic and electric and Bobby tell's this joke; What do you get when you cross an octopuss with a pig ? He also makes mention of Jesse Fuller.
Any help or pointers datewise or otherwise would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

it's not Bill Graham doing the intro, at the moment the guys name escapes me, but he is (was) an english actor.

the date is 2/14/70

Yeah,..now that you mention it, I do recall that. Well,.. you have heard the show I'm asking about,..any ideas on date or venue ? I kinda got hung up on it being Bill doing the intro but Bobby metioning Jesse Fuller and telling the crowd to check him out sometime makes me think maybe a west coast show.
Thanks for responding.

there it is! Yeah, and if I remember correctly they delivered him to the stage in a casket. He then got out and wished everyone a "Happy Valentine's Day"

again, to the OP... it is 2/14/70. The Fillmore East.
